The morphologization of verb suffixes in Northern Chinese

Abstract : This paper describes various types of the morphologization of verb suffixes at work in Northern Mandarin, and provides a tentative classification based on fieldwork in Hebei and western Shaanxi, as well as on an extensive survey of second-hand descriptions. What we call the ‘inflected form’ of the verb regularly corresponds in Standard Mandarin to the verb followed by perfective or stativizing suffixes, goal markers, and complementizers. We discuss the following issues: 1) To what extent does this morphologization process question the prevalent view on Chinese, i.e. Chinese, as an analytic-isolating language, cannot go further up the grammaticalization cline? 2) More than half a century after the first study which pointed at “verbal inflection” in a Shaanxi dialect, to what extent can we link these morphologization phenomena to language contact, and more precisely to language contact specific to the Northwest Mandarin area?
